Dear All,

The Convention on Migratory Species (CMS / www.cms.int<http://www.cms.int>) and ASCOBANS (Agreement on the Conservation of Small Cetaceans of the Baltic, North East Atlantic, Irish and North Seas / www.ascobans.org<http://www.ascobans.org>) are currently preparing an extension to their existing exhibition material focusing specifically on several threats to marine species. In order to be able to finalise the banners, we still require some high resolution photos. Also, with the photographers' permission, we would be interested to use these in other awareness raising activities, too.

For the "Threat Exhibition", we are urgently looking for free photos of:

*       Ship strikes (e.g. whale on bow, or injuries clearly related to collisions or propeller strikes)

*       Narwhal/s

For other outreach and educational activities, we would also be interested in:

*       Breaching orca

*       Memorable photos of any other cetacean species

*       Use of pingers

*       Small cetacean bycatch

*       Use of bubble curtain to mitigate noise (pile-driving or explosion)

*       Marine life (cetacean, turtle or bird) affected by plastics

*       Small cetacean affected by ship or propeller strikes

*       Sustainable whale/dolphin watching

If you have any suitable photos on these themes, we would be very grateful if you would make them available to us. For all the threat-related photos, please bear in mind that these pictures are to be used for the general public, so they should clearly illustrate the problem (not requiring extensive explanations), but not be too shocking (we don't want children to burst into tears when seeing our exhibition).

We will always give due credit to the photographer and/or organisation whenever we use a photo, so for each submission please include in the file name (a) the species that can be seen on the image (if known) and (b) how the image shall be credited. If you would like to grant permission for a specific purpose but not others, please let us know.

CMS and ASCOBANS are UN treaties and therefore non-profit organisations. While we have a strong mandate for outreach and education activities, our resources are very limited. We are therefore very grateful for all submissions of suitable photos!

Thank you in advance and kind regards,
